Lynne Reid Banks is a British author of books for children and adults. She spits in the teacher’s eye and worse.

Angela and Diabola

Inadvertently named Angela and Diabola at the christening by the shocked minister, their natures are apparent from the moment of birth, when Angela coos and smiles beatifically, and Diabola nearly bites the nurse’s thumb off. Unlike the other books that Lynne has cleverly written that fill me with happy and almost blissful feelings. This was well-written, and definitely a unique story!

Angela has the power of goodness but also the curse of perfection, and the relationship between the sisters is complex and layered.


Angela and Diabola Book Review

A good read for all ages. Fiabola the right kids, this is both hilarious and thought-provoking. The humor is as wicked as Diabola, and though children often delight in bad children in literature, Diabola is bad on a level they won’t admire or envy.

I first read this years ago. My kids kept bringing the book to me anytime they thought there was even a chance I’d read some of it. I still love the story to this day. Set preferences to see our top age-appropriate picks for angepa kids.

The two approaches don’t always blend: A pair of twins, opposite and nearly-supernatural in their differences. Not sure of the overall quality of writing, but as a year-old I absolutely loved it!
